Weld Process :
Used for Mig, Tig & Submerged arc Deposited All Weld Metal Properties Data is typical for ER316LSi weld metal deposited by mig using Argon+2% oxygen and Tig using 100% Argon as the shielding gas. Data on Sub-arc is not presented, as sub-arc is dependent on the type of flux used.
ER-316LSi affords the same characteristics as 316L. The high silican alloys better are stability along with minimal post-weld grinding . The low carbon in the weld metal gives excellent assurance against inter-granular corrosion.
